Beast is talking about scraps from the demo and the next stop is the landfill. While I can do it with my van this will be the cheapest solution and you only have to move the crap once. I checked and they are available in Waldorf

Could always check out the dumpster bag from Waste Management. Seen these running on TV commercials and could be helpful for small demos. I winded up getting a full size dumpster and glad I did. We have a friend who drops them on the side and he hooked me up. I paid like $250 to dump the materials and like a $100 for the drop. I had it over 2 months, it came in handy when I stripped the roof. That was half of my weight.

Just a suggestion, but in our area if I have waste that needs disposal that won't fit into the standard 95 gallon can, all I have to do is call the city and they send a special truck on garbage day to pick it all up. Most of the time the service is included with my monthly waste disposal fee, but if it's a large item, like a washer, they charge a nominal fee. I've set out TONS of construction debris over the last 8 years and have never paid a dime.

"At next week's CEDIA in Denver, Epson will unveil a new flagship home theater projector that will get the industry buzzing...

The Pro Cinema LS10000 will be a major step up in price and performance compared to anything previously released by Epson. Its features include 4K enhancement of 1080p sources, native 4K compatibility, a light engine that combines a long life laser light source with reflective 3LCD chips, and 3-way automated lens memory for 2.40, 1.85, and 1.78 Constant Image Height installations. Contrast is so high on the LS10000 that Epson declines to put a number on it. Contrast is simply designated as “Absolute Black.”

I wish I knew your dumpster frend! lol. For the amount of scrap, the bagster is too rich for my blood. But if I could find a place to store the scraps until I accumulated more waste to make this bagster worthwhile, I'd definitely look into it. Big told me about these Bagster guys when I was looking to remove the trash from the original basement demo. They're a pretty neat alternative to dumpsters indeed.

My development contracts with Waste Management (the company) for trash removal. I'm still going to look into this option though. I know they do bulk removal, but their structure is weird--$75 for first bulk item, and $15 for each additional bulk item. How do I make wood scraps a single bult item? Maybe I can build a very broken tree-house and that can be my "first" item. lol

Or just use those heavy duty extra ply plastic construction bags. I've thrown out some crazy stuff and they always take it. I smashed a cast iron bath tub with a sledge and bagged it and they took it. Countless construction debris, etcetera..

You'd be surprised what they haul away.
You've got me thinking now--perhaps I can just use my saw, cut everything down, and have the garbage collectors grab it over a series of months. Granted, the garbage folks don't take anything that's not in a standard garbge can. I learned that after my basement bathroom demo--hauled 13 bags to the front of the yard, just to see them still in front of the house when I got home. :( I'd have to get rid of two to three bags a week like I did with the bathroom demo scraps, but it's free....free is hard to beat!

When are those unboxing videos coming???? this looks insane! How much power can these things handle??
Bananas....in pajamas INSANE!!!!1 lolol. No unboxing videos for these--these InRoom plats are rated for 500w, which means they reeeeally handle about 2000w.

Widths in Atmos are for objects only and not part of the channel bed. Overkill? Yes! Do I like it? Yes!! :D
Overkilllll indeed! There are a couple other things I.m thinking about doing with these--there are a few rooms that I know I can use these in if I went another route.

I can't wait until it is GTG time... :)
Me neither man---I look forward to sharing the result of all this labor with others who can also appreciate the final result!

R U using these kinds of Plats or the ones that are designed to be installed in a wall??
Both--cinemaplus Plats designed for baffe wall are the LCR channels, and InRoom Plats are the wides (not using cinemaplus Plats as wides becasue they require a baffle-wall and an angled bafflewall would get in the way of the screen at the width channel position.

The Pro Cinema LS10000 will be a major step up in price and performance compared to anything previously released by Epson. Its features include 4K enhancement of 1080p sources, native 4K compatibility, a light engine that combines a long life laser light source with reflective 3LCD chips, and 3-way automated lens memory for 2.40, 1.85, and 1.78 Constant Image Height installations. Contrast is so high on the LS10000 that Epson declines to put a number on it. Contrast is simply designated as “Absolute Black.”
I've always looked at Epsons as "almost JVC's" due to black level differences (no offense fo epson owners)--could they really have accomplished better-than-JVC black levels? I do wonder......they are know for their light-output for sure. This is certainly one worth watching when I'm at CEDIA next week, although the 4k enhanced instead of 4k compatible is another disappointing blow to this years projector announcements. I thought EVERY manufacturer would be doing 4k by this CEDIA.

2015 CEDIA announcements are more likely, considering 4K spinning media *should* be available by then. I, for one, view 4K as a 'nice to have' vs. a 'need to have' at this stage due to the lack of content. Even native 4K projectors upscale 1080p, so this Epson is no different.

I look forward to seeing this projector live in the flesh next week as well! Contrast is one thing, but hopefully it has brightness that can rival their Pro G series to support really large screens. And hopefully the 'step up' in price is not too big....:(

I just thought that projector looked interesting. It's priced right, and no matter what people say there isn't such a thing as too much light (especially for 3D)

On the trash barrel thing,

Go buy a few more trash barrels so you can put out more barrels each week. Trash barrels are like $10 each. Put the bags in the barrels. Problem solved.

our area uses the Hollywood cans (Tote with wheels) The driver doesn't often even leave the truck as they have a lift that grabs the can. In some areas if it isn't in the can with their logo it doesn't always get picked up. Luckily my street is not one of those areas as I seem to always have more than the provided can.

I did not even think of that. Makes me appreciate how easy I have it. Our town has free trash removal, and they take just about anything. In a bag, in a barrel. They will even grab bulk items sitting on the curb. It doesn't really matter.

Can you buy additional trash barrels that are the ones they use ? (I'm guessing it's not the $9.99 special :mad: )

Honestly, with my screen size, I'd actually take a hit in contrast to get sufficient brightness. I don't think I shared this with anyone, but I decided that if nothing great it's announced at CEDIA, I may actually just get another 600ES and call it a day.

Yeah, definitely interesting. It's LASER too, which is awesome! If it's a light cannon with 3D, I'm in. Yeah bins are like $40 where I am for the medium and $65 fit the large ones.

Haven't heard about them, but they sound neat! I'll research them as well. Thanks Big. Btw, more ib-3 clips are arriving today.

out service provides these with their logo painted on the side, In my county there are several trash companies that compete for business. Our 12 home HOA did a group deal and we pay the "Condo" rate for our single family homes. It is paid out of our HOA fees, wasn't mandatory but is was a no brainer, Only one truck coming down the street, cheap rate and no individual monthly bills to pay.
